Teachers - the evidence points to us doing things radically different next school year. Some of y'all are prepping already but if you're still in the "I'm paralyzed" camp but want to contribute to some incredibly important changes this country needs then here's a little thread.
FIRST, go sign up for all the social media you can get from @ZinnEdProject. You'll get daily On This Day material but you'll also get teaching materials, the ability to search by time period or theme, and you can also donate. DON'T forget to donate.
zinnedproject.org
You can start with this one: zinnedproject.org/2016/06/civil-… because the protests students are currently seeing are not unlike those in the 60s. This may mean you'll have to do something you don't like. You MIGHT have to cut down on that favorite unit of yours that you've spent years on.

Day 1 of summer school down. We’re reading Wilson’s FENCES. Our first paired text was Morrison's “Recitatif.” Tomorrow, it’s the “Bona and Paul” Excerpt from Jean Toomer’s CANE. #pairedtexts #engchat #litchat
Day 2 included a close reading of “Bona and Paul,” followed by theme statements for the story, and a gender-flipped reading of Act One Scene One of FENCES. Two girls read the parts of Troy and Bono and there was much engagement and laughter.
Preliminary Notes from Day 3:

Student to me: Did you pick FENCES or did they tell you to teach it?
Me: No, I picked it. I love teaching it.
Him: You picked a good one.

HIGHEST PRAISE ALWAYS COMES FROM THE KIDS.
